Plan on traveling while you are in Israel and the region? Looking to get away from your labs and immersed in the local scenery and culture? Feel like taking a tent to the middle of nowhere for the weekend? Of course, you do!

Join us for an evening talk with local tour guides, travel experts, and outdoor specialists from Finjan, an alternative travel and trekking company. In this session, you will get a solid understanding of how to navigate and travel around Israel.

For those coming from abroad, Israel can be a tricky country to navigate and explore in depth. Accurate information on travel and the outdoors is not always updated, nor is it always easy to find real-time info on things you want to do.

  • Online resources (weather trackers and alerts, updated outdoor info)
  • Camping guidelines
